I find your forums quite informative whenever searching for disc burners or blank media.
I recently bought a 50 pack spindle (my first) of verbatim cd-r. Though i had ordered azo ones, i received non azo instead.
On checking the disc info, this is what i get
ATIP info from disk:
Indicated writing power: 5

Disk Is not erasable

ATIP start of lead in: -11607 (97:27/18)

These are made in India, and have plasmon as manufacturer.
Also, on the bottom side of the disc, the following is written:

Can you please enlighten me about the quality of this media. I mainly intend to use it for burning linux distros.
